Some American commentators close to the Obama administration are touting the coup in Kiev as a successful tit for tat for Russia’s obstruction of U.S. war plans against Syria and its broader imperialist agenda. However, the Europeans, who get a lot of their gas from Russia, are split over joining ‘a coalition of the willing’.

As is obvious, there is little the U.S. can, should or will do. The more the U.S. swaggers hollowly about the Crimea, the sadder it all sounds.

Hey lookit here, jiggling, shiny keys. Oh wait, I just forgot what I was going to write, but at least I’ve stopped kicking the seat in front of me.
Distracting people from real issues with shiny objects is called “hope and change” nowadays. Here’s the latest (and this is not satire.)
The Wall Street Journal, citing unnamed administration “officials close to the matter,” tells us that four suggestions for “NSA reform” will be forwarded to the president for a decision.

There was an increase of people at emergency food programs in New York City due to the Nov. 1 Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program cuts, according to a latest research brief from the Food Bank of New York City.
As the brief mentions, this took place as the number of soup kitchens and food pantries in New York City fell by 25 percent under former Mayor Michael Bloomberg during 2007 to 2012. Meanwhile, Congress decided to let five billion dollars in SNAP benefits expire, which were extended under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, expire on Nov. 1, leaving the 47 million Americans relying on SNAP $121 (for a household of one) to $396 (for a household of four) short.

This football game will bring more attention to the fight against destructive Federal and lower government policies than any event yet. It wasn’t planned. We’ll see soon where the MSM takes this.

President Obama has said that Martin Luther King Jr’s “Letter from Birmingham Jail” is a favorite of his, but again and again, he seems not to understand what King was saying.
Edward Snowden and Angela Merkel are giving him an opportunity to reread it and try once more to get the point.

A massive, frighteningly expensive program that does much harm and no good does not need tweaking. It needs to be ended.

In May of 2012, President Obama addressed graduates at the U.S. Air Force Academy in these terms:
“I see an American century because no other nation seeks the role that we play in global affairs, and no other nation can play the role that we play in global affairs.”
Less than two years later, not only has the president’s claim of American exceptionalism been widely derided, the country is in disarray on the world stage.
